    Custom Properties and PDM Data Cards

    Glenn Douglas

      When our VAR setup our PDM system they setup custom properties to populate the 'Custom' and 'Configuration Specific' tabs under File Properties. They said it had something to do with the @ and Default tabs on the Data Card.

       

      Depending on the part these duplicate properties are confusing. For instance our drawings pulls the drawing title (description) from the part file. Since there are two 'description' properties Solidworks defaults to the 'configuration specific' property. We have people editing the wrong field and asking why the drawing title is not updateing.

       

      Is this the way other people have PDM setup?
